The Libyan Desert, also known as the Western Desert, forms the northern and eastern part of the Sahara Desert.  The desert extends approximately 1100 km from east to west, and 1,000 km from north to south, in about the shape of a rectangle. Like most of the Sahara, this desert is primarily sand and hamada or stony plain.
